Our room was not soundproof. Could hear other people talking in their room. We are an elderly couple and were given an upstairs room - had to lug two big suitcases up and down the stairs. Also could smell food from the kitchen downstairs.

Nice relaxing B&B. Very friendly owners. Loved the breakfast menu and looking forward to going back to this cosy cottage for those heavenly crepes again. The rooms are all air conditioned and good clean bathroom facilities. A clean pool and perfect outdoor areas to rest and read a book.

The accommodation was excellent - the room was clean and spacious, the bed firm and the bathroom had both a bath and a shower. The breakfast offered a wide selection of good food. The staff and management were very friendly, without being over the top.

Against to all my expectation this small cosy hotel gave me pleasurable home atmosphere for two whole weeks. To start with a beautiful garden with mysterious corners in which one can draw back and take rest in peace and contemplation, surrounded by high bushes and exotic flowers. Everything in the hotel was somehow disciplined and arranged so that you are... More

My stay at Wild Olive Guest House was superb for a few reasons. My room was large, lots of cupboard space, and well equipped. The room was clean, and the bed and linen really comfortable. The owners were extremely accomodating as my plans were uncertain, and they were very kind and understanding. The breakfast is good, as well as the... More

We recently stayed at Wild Olive Guest House in Cape Town and we received the most special kindness and consideration due to our health issues. The owners could not have been more accommodating. They went out of their way to help us. Over and above their kindness, the Guest House was super - we will be back and will recommend... More

Had a 2 night stay at short notice last week. Owner obligingly accommodated our late arrival as we could only get the last flight ex Durban. Had a lovely room with a huge bathroom with a separate shower, all immaculate. The breakfasts are outstanding catering to every need including fresh fruit, nuts, cheeses & yoghurts. Many breads & cereals &... More

We were a party of 6 staying at the guesthouse. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and the linen top! All rooms have a safe, minibar and tea/coffee facilities. Nice English and continental breakfast are served. We will not hesitate to recommend the guesthouse to our family and friends.

Ulf and Mieke are wonderful hosts and all the staff helpful and friendly. A very convenient location, attractive and beautifully kept surroundings, and fantastic breakfasts! The only very minor criticism I have is that the shower drain gave off an unpleasant odour which tended to linger. Apart from that everything was perfect!
